White Bean and Tomato Soup

This delicious vegetarian Tuscan style soup is a genuine one-pot wonder.  White beans, tomatoes, kale and parmesan with a little kick of chilli, it is a weekly staple in our house.  OK, the kids don't love it but sometimes it is only the adults in our house that I am aiming to please and if I [...]

My Byron Bay Avocado on Toast

At the beginning of the Christmas holiday period, my husband and I did a little 3 night jaunt to Byron Bay - sans kids.  We so rarely go away from the kids, mainly because we quite like our children (go figure?!) and enjoy time together as a family.  But I have to say, some time spent [...]

Blissful Snacks

Well hello and a huge welcome back to everyone after the mammoth summer holidays - which in Singapore just seem to go forever.  With the variation in school calendars, it can easily be two months before everyone is back in town.  If you missed my last post (there has only been one over the past [...]

If you are looking for a super easy lemon pie to make for your next BBQ or dinner party then look no further.  Here it is.  You might not have even known that you needed (or perhaps wanted?) this recipe, but once you taste this light and creamy slightly tart pie you will not look [...]

Frozen Goodness on a Stick

In Southern climes everyone is gearing up for winter - elsewhere Spring has sprung and summer is on it's way...here in Singapore the predictability of the weather continues - sunny mornings, rainy afternoons and inescapable heat and humidity.  There are no variations in the length of our days and very little in the way of [...]

Chicken and Caramelised Lemon Salad

It feels like a long time since I did a food post on the blog.  This year has been peppered with time away from Singapore so I haven't been in the kitchen as much and have kind of fallen into eating the same meals week in week out and lacking inspiration.  But after returning from [...]

Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Some countries just do a particular food well - where would we be without French bread or Italian pizza...and when it comes to cookie baking you really want to turn to the Americans for a little cookie know-how. There is something about an American cookie that is just so much better than a British biscuit.*  Biscuits are kind [...]

Spicy Mexican Quinoa Salad

This super delicious Spicy Mexican Quinoa salad is pure smoky chilli goodness.  I made it recently for a friend who was coming over on a week night to watch the 1D movie without kids...yes I know...what can I say? It's like stepping back decades and being a teenage pop fan all over again!  Swooning over [...]

Apple Bircher Muesli

I like a bit of clean healthy eating throughout the year but there is surely no better month for re-igniting a healthy lifestyle than January.  Even though I am not a fan of New Year's resolutions, getting back to your usual healthy life after a period of indulgence feels good (mind you sipping Moscow Mules [...]

Almond and Raspberry Tart

This dessert has become my go-to entertaining-for-a-crowd dessert.  It is the perfect two-for-one dessert as the tart only requires egg yolks, which means you are left with six egg whites to whip into meringue.  From there you can make a pavlova or individual meringues - whichever you prefer.  It's an economical way to create two desserts out [...]
